Smoked Corn King Ham

September 05, 2011

1 whole Corn King Ham, 1/8 cup whole cloves, 1 large can sliced pineapple rings, 3 cups Brown sugar, Maraschino cherries, Molasses, 1 small jar cherry marmalade Score ham diagonally both ways. Stick whole cloves in the top of the ham. I space them about ½ to ¾ inches apart. Position pineapple rings on top, with a cherry in the center. Hold in place with ½ a toothpick inserted in the cherry. Combine 3 cups of brown sugar with some of the pineapple juice and a little cherry juice. Just enough to make the sugar into thick syrup. Add about ½ cup molasses to mixture. Place ham into pan, then cover the top of the ham with the brown sugar syrup mixture. Place on Hasty Bake for approximately 4 hours, indirect heat. Remove and top with the cherry marmalade, just a thin layer. Return to grill for another 1 to 1 ½ hours. Periodically stoke the charcoal with oak or hickory. Remove from grill and let cool for 15 to 20 minutes. Slice thin and serve. Warn everyone to remove the cloves, a little strong if you eat one.
